Wow. I’m a slacker! Sorry Ann and Chris!! FINALLY, here are your pictures!! :)
Ann and Chris tied the knot at the beautiful Lakeside Chapel at Kindred Community Church in Anaheim Hills! The ladies there were awesomely efficient and the site was a gorgeously simple outdoor site. These parasols were complimentary for our guests:
And Ann provided water on a warm day:
Sooo artsy. :)
I loved the simple bouquets of roses with the cuff of lemon leaves that the girls carried, compliments of David Brian Designs!
Talk about curb-side service!!!
A quick snap of Ann’s gorgeous detailing:
The famed Kim Le and co. in action!!
Ann and Chris are soo full of love! At this point I had to jet off to their reception site, Ports O Call Restaurant in San Pedro! The view of the Port was gorgeous and we had one of the best ballrooms there!! Some details…
Ann’s candy buffets was one of my faves! Plus, I haven’t had one of these in a few months… they’re still SO fun!!
These “risers” that we put the jars on are ours! It truly adds a unique touch!
The whole shebang:
You know my thing for cakes? Well now it’s caught on to my assistant, Miriam. She’s obsessed too! Which is great… because that means even though I’m too busy to snap, she finds the time and snaps away for me!!!
Sigh… love this!
The coral color of those roses is drool-worthy!
I snapped a quick shot of Ann’s TOO CUTE to-go containers:
LOVE the sign-in picture that Kim Le brought with her. Their engagement pics are classically beautiful!
And now… for the evening’s events! Straight after their grand entrance, the romantic first dance!!
Ann was smiling and laughing in Chris’ arms the whole night!!
After dinner and a KILLER slideshow put together by the best man, we had our father/daughter and mother/son dances:
She was beaming the whole night, regardless of the little hiccups that seemed to keep me busy!!
Their daughter, Kiana, grabbed one of the other flower girls and joined in… melt!!!
Onto the cutting, which was a family affair!!
A dark one…
And into the toss. See that beautiful girl in the black dress?? Yep, that’s Amber of Amber and Trevor!! Thanks for the referral guys! I loved seeing you two again!!
I looove it when groom’s have a long dance/walk to their bride for the garter removal. Chris was no exception! He took a nose dive and slid on his belly to her!!! Exceptional!
And the last image of the night are a close-up of our extra ceremony fans, which we left out for the guests at the end of the evening to take home with them… they were a huge hit!!
All in all, the night was a busy one! I got to enjoy some great time with the other vendors [nothing like clicking as if you're part of a team]! I got to see team-work in action from the bridal party and the others, behind the scenes. I got to see love take shape and form! I am so blessed by it!
A&C: you know the best thing about you two? You’re in love! You two get one another. You’re comfortable. You can be half way across the room [and I'm sure, across the world] and with one glance someone can see that you two are connected by something so special. I loved witnessing that. I loved being the one who got to take care of you on your big day! Allow the memories that you made to soak in and anxiously await the pro pictures as I am!! Let them carry you back to this big moment in your life, all the enormity, joy, and simplicity that was a part of it!! xoxo!!
